Ski on jelly legs

The 16th annual Gunbarrel 25 at Heavenly Mountain Resort is on March 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Heavenly’s famous mogul run tests the endurance of participants who must ski 25 laps of the 1,600-vertical-foot The Face within six hours. Some ski for the fastest times and some just ski until it’s time to stop. There will be awards for a number of categories, but the quickest finishers earn their names on the Gunbarrel 25 plaque that hangs in the neighboring California Lodge. This annual event is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. |
